Ibsen on the sea

by

Michael Strong passes on a quote found by Patrick Peterson:

> _We ought to avail ourselves of the sea, building floating cities on it so that we can move southward or northward according to the time of year…. Some such happy state will come one day, though we shall not live to see it._
> P. 335 Note. #11
